Ford Motor Co. Executive Chairman Bill Ford has shown Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder his company's newest and oldest offerings during a tour at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit.

Ford on Tuesday showed his friend and Republican governor gleaming new Fusion and Focus models. He also showed a decidedly older model - a 1903 Model A.

Ford says he recently bought the "oldest surviving Ford car in the world" at auction. He says it's one of three vehicles his great-grandfather Henry Ford hand-built on the "first day of business."

Snyder told him that would be fun to figure out. Ford replied he'd "come over" to Snyder's house and "honk the horn loudly on the way over."
